, that we actually had a formula for success in this country. one, we educate our people up to and beyond what the technology was, so they can get the most out of it. whether it was universal secondary education, and then it was universal post secondary education. second, we have the world's best infrastructure. roads, railroads, third, we have the world's most immigration policy. so we get the most energy etic and talented im-- energetic and talented immigration. fourth, we have the best rules. lastly, we have the most government-funded research. we push the balance on science and technology, so our best innovators are here. in education, we now, well, roughly 30% of high school students drop out of high school. we used to ld the world in college graduates. we no longer do that. on infrastructure, according to the american society of civil engineers, we are now $2 trillion in deficits in terms of infrastructure. a great education, and get the hell out of our country. we are fighting on each one of these issues that are so vital to our greatest strength. i don't think we can remedy this .
a third world infrastructure. we need to spend more on education. one of the concerns that i raise in my book is america has become the country with the least equality of opportunity of any of the advanced industrial countries. >> equality of opportunity meaning -- >> that the life chances of a child are more dependent on the education and income of his parents than in any of the other advanced countries for which there is data. and the main reason for this is lack of equality, of opportunity for education. for a good education. >> and when you look at education statistics in the u.s. compared to rest of the industrialized world, we fell to what? >> we're way in the middle. we-- we are not at the top of the league any more by a long shot. we need to spend more on technology if we want to be competitive in the world. >> why didn't we do this in the stimulus program that was enacted? >> i think we should have done more. i think the -- >> was it a commit political compromise that prevented the stimulus program being what might have met your approval. >> it was partly a political compromise.
. educators there are taken a different approach. >> reporter: in new jersey a new anti-bullying law took effect from september 2011. the state law once bullying is observed schools are required to look into it immediately, notify parents and take steps to tackle it. this middle school has the anti-bully bill of rights. the school counselor was appointed last year as the school's anti-bullying specialist. >> this is my anti-bullying bible. >> reporter: the law requires each school district to create its on antibullying program. the program sets out detail procedure to follow when bullying occurs and steps for dealing with the bully. when bullying is reported, they begin the investigation and contact offender. they also contact after school counseling. the law stipulates the student can be suspended or expelled and reported to the police if it's serious. >> the benefit about the law is it's a must so every school district has to handle a report in the same way. there's no gray area and it's not something that is really subjective. >> japan has no laws dealing with school bullying but local
the educational experience of all pupils. >> caller: that's good. i guess it goes back to the case the was deemed moot anyway, but the fact of the matter is when you are laying on that table and you are about to have brain surgery, it doesn't matter what color the surgeon is. i don't care if he is black, white, it doesn't make any difference. the fact of the matter is if they were granted admission to school simply based on the fact of their skin color, that in itself is discriminatory. >> host: okay. carroll. oklahoma city. independent. good morning. >> caller: good morning. i would say that i hope [inaudible] they don't intervene because that affirmative action of white women versus african-american women for jobs and positions and i think it is being used in that respect. hopefully the supreme court will step down and allow it to continue as it is. >> host: okay. new hampshire. the democratic call. good morning, now three. what are your thoughts? >> caller: i just think it's unfortunate that today we need this kind of law we. look at the ayaan to leave the unemployment rate on its higher among
the first question i went to princeton university i hope these guys are good to be well-educated and know something and the first question is where is your tomahawk? the borderland follows me everywhere. there was no way to escape it. the only way through it and so i realized there are not that -- i wouldn't be the barometer by which a lot of people what, you know, understand or judge native people so i realize the importance of my work and that her presentation. >> one of the things i like about your book is balance and that's important that type of community based upon balance but in the book we had a lot of balance, we balance the topics dealing with sensitive issues that might be sensitive to a non-native person like mike cherokee grandmother was a cherokee princess for the tribal community for enrollment and then you dealt with tough issues like the history of christopher columbus so there's a history lesson and then the ler enjoyment of reading the book. how did you decide what to include and what not to include in this book? >> guest: writing the book happened faster than my resear
on banks and insurance companies. we cannot got our investments on education, clean energy, research, technology. that is not a plan to grow the economy. that is not change. we have been there. we have tried that. we are not going back. we are moving forward. that is why i am running for a second term as president of the united states. [applause] look -- we have got a different view about how you bring jobs and prosperity to america. the strong economy does not trickle down from the top. it grows from a thriving middle- class, and folks working hard to get into the middle-class. i think it is time our tax code stopped rewarding companies that ship jobs overseas. let us reward small businesses and manufacturing here in ohio, products made in america. that is the choice in this election. i believe we can create more jobs by controlling more of our own energy. after 30 years of inaction, we raised fuel standards. by the middle of the next decade, your cars and trucks would go twice as far on a gallon of gas. today, the u.s. is less dependent on foreign oil than at any time in two decade
for their college education and she's voted to increase taxes on the middle class through the ryan plan. all of this in order to keep tax breaks for multi-millionaires and tax breaks and subsidies for corporations who ship jobs overseas. we're going to reduce the deficits by bringing home our troops from afghanistan, by making sure that we create jobs right here in the district, by making sure that we decrease taxes on the middle class and small businesses, and by allowing medicare to negotiate drug prices with our pharmaceutical companies so that we can tackle the real problem, which is our health care costs and eliminate unnecessary procedures and redundant tests. >> all right, thank you, dr. ruiz. congresswoman, you have one minute. >> i don't think he understood the question, because what he just said, he's going to reduce the debt by not having so many medical tests, which, by the way, is a major part of obama care. obama care is what cut medicare by $716 billion on. let me tell you a few specific things i would do immediately to cut the debt. first of all, i would repeal obama care as
really good academic education but they've also really gotten spectacular education in living with the folks who are the real virginia today. we're increasingly diverse state and that's an important part of medication. -- education. i would hope what the supreme court would do in this case would be they would affirm that it is ok for a public institution, whether it's government body handing out contracts or student or college admitting students, that it's ok for them to try to make sure that their student body looks like the state looks. they should if at all practical use factors on race and economic disadvantage, are you the first in your family to go to college? but if you see public institutions where the numbers of students dramatically different then the state population, i think it's an indication of challenge and problem that we have to try to solve. i strongly believe the diversity of our commonwealth is the strength, diversity of our nation is a strength and we ought to see diversity in our public bodies. >> mr. allen? >> i'm in some agreement with tim's expressions
versus board of education, and he ordered the integration of the central high school in little rock and the demonstrations there which blocked the desegregation eisenhower ordered the 101st airborne division from fort campbell to little rock to enforce desegregation with a forceful message to everyone in the south that the desegregation integration was the loss of land and eisenhower was going to support it with the armed forces of the united states. what a powerful message. [applause] but finally, eisenhower did not take the lead in rgb advantages of integration as john f. kennedy and lyndon johnson to. eisenhower felt this was a difficult till -- pill to swallow and the best way to get them to do that was to stress that this was the law. this was the rule of law and he is president was going to take care of the law. it made it much easier, and easier pill for the south to swallow.

bullying. so educators there are taking a different approach. here's the view from new jersey. >> reporter: in new jersey, a new anti-bullying law took effect from september 2011. under the state law is bullying reserved, school staff are to look into it immediately, notify the parents, and take steps to tackle it. east hanover middle school had set up messages on the new anti-bullying bill of rights. the school counselor was appointed last year at the school's an -- as the school's anti-bullying specialist. >> so this is, like, my anti-bullying bible. where i have all my information. >> reporter: the law requires each school district to create its own anti-bullying program. the program sets out detailed procedure to follow when bullying occurs and steps for dealing with the bully. when bullying is reported, she and others begin an investigation and contact the offender. they also contact afterschool counseling. the law even stipulas that the student can be suspended or expelled and the case reported to police if it's serious. >> the benefit about this law is that it's a must. so every sch

international attention. malala yusde had been speaking out about the need to educate girls which the taliban opposes. she was shot and critically wounded on tuesday on her way home from school in pakistan. several men stopped a cool bus and opened fire. she was taken to a military hospital where she's said to be unconscious and in serious condition. the taliban had claimed responsibility for the attack. a resurgence of islamist militancy in the region began about five years ago. extremists have since attacked schools for girls, forcing many of them to close. teenage activist had been writing about such illegal acts by the taliban on her british media-backed blog. the international community expressing outrage and strongly condemning the shooting. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton praised yusdea campaign for women's rights. >> she was attacked and shot by extremists who don't want gills to have an education and don't want girls to speak for themselves and don't want girls to become leaders. >> and european union foreign policy chief kathryn ashton also denounced the attack as a vile act
jobs. we cannot slow up on education because that's the engine that is going to give us the economic growth and competitiveness that we need. and we are not going to slow up on the whole idea of providing for affordable health care for americans, none of which when we get to talk about health care is as my, as the governor characterized, characterized. the bottom line here is that we are going to, in fact, eliminate those wasteful spending that exist in the budget right now. a number of things i don't have time because the light is blinking that i won't be able to mention, but one of which is the $100 billion tax dodge that, in fact, allows people to take their post office box offshore, avoid taxes. i call that unpatriotic. i call that unpatriotic. that's what i'm talking about. >> moderator: governor? palin: well, the nice thing about running with john mccain is i can assure you he doesn't tell one thing to one group and then turns around and tells something else to another group, including his plans that will make this bailout plan, this rescue plan even better. i want to go back t
of the opposition. and the elections that were held this summer were an education precisely for introducing under the aegis of in effect regime sponsorship, a new element of political personnel authorized to found new parties as a way of being put into the political disposition. at the same time it's a regime that doesn't hesitate to make deals even with opposition figures when it decides that that's a smart thing to do. third element is of course the stake -- the stick. it's been striking that while generally seeking to co-opt, bite off, the regime has been taking a very hard line against certain elements of a certain source of unrest, particularly those unemployed to come instead of queuing up to get credit can have actually been demonstrating, demanding jobs. nuance actually matters on that nuance depends on whether you get a handout or -- [inaudible]. the regime is not interested in really undertaking and you've got a change in economic policy that leads to significant job creation. and, therefore, it's been quite harsh with those elements of the algerian youth demanding that, and campaigning
tremendous amount of education. retired in the country retired for the hundred veterans this year and that 78 companies there's 20,000 veterans. they're giving homes which were under the veterans, as we try to participate. and to me it's a healthy vibrant company makes it possible. that income as possible, and that's why i turned to michael the time and if i don't make customers happy, they're is no -- i've never separated them. always invest in the future, take care of your own people and clients. let me go back to this issue one more time to read here is a question for you all. we have something like $15 billion of exposure in all the stuff like that and it bounces around to make those 15 in spain. you could easily tell me get it down. i would get it down. we have been in stanford over a hundred years. jpmorgan and fever in italy he would say okay, jpmorgan, the year in good times and bad times for me which is what we are doing. the government, the bank, huge corporations. and i know we could lose $546 billion just like that. i will be a drawdown to congress again. spain would go bad. how c

of the expenditures in the tax code are not loopholes at all. tax preferences, things like a college education and retirement savings belong in the tax code even after reform happens. they were put in the code on purpose, to make a middle-class lifestyle accessible and sustainable for american families. tax reform recognized this in 1986 even as we cleared out the underbrush of loopholes, which preserved versions of the mortgage interest deduction, the charitable deduction, the state and local property tax deduction. realized that as much as we want to make the code more efficient, these provisions were two essential to middle-class households. we have to abide by the same principle today. if we seek to protect the expenditures that are most essential to the middle-class, we still hope to reduce the deficit and we will need to find alternative revenue sources. this leads to the second principle of this new model for tax reform -- the tax rate for the highest earners should probably return to clinton-era levels and stay somewhere around there. this will come as heresy to some of those on the ot

improvements in public education, safety, welfare reform, and i described how worked with leaders in the other party to get results for the people. the bad economy, his decision, his choice serving as national party chairman rather than focusing on the economic crisis in virginia. it is the great, and answer a question in this campaign. how does a governor decide to take on a second job, giving partisan speeches, well over 100,000 jobs are lost here in virginia. if he had given his governorship the full attention, he might have avoided some mistakes like increase in college tuition by over 40%. if he had been listening to the people of virginia who are really facing tough times, he might not have proposed raising taxes on working people, working women, seniors, small business owners, and people earning $17,000. he might tip been against the sequestration deal threatening jobs in virginia right now. but he made different choices. soon, you'll get to choose. if i have the honor of being your senator, i will give all my energy to working with both parties and getting america us sending once again

[laughter] >> no, let me answer this. i personally believe that a lot of what you said is valid. when i teach constitutional law in that deal with the issue of sodomy and the laws against sodomy in the united states, i ask my students, why was it plans? and it is not just -- sodomy applies to both, sexual and heterosexual intercourse. i ask them why it was banned in all of the state's. and the reason was the belief, i dearly held belief and one which i share in which when people get together to express their love through sexuality it should be an expression of love and not just the need to have a physical release. it is then we are using another human being for our pleasure. i find that immoral. however, it is absolutely true that what you are talking about is not as effective form of bi
